What’s new in Mnova 6.1.0

  • 2D assignment and assignments carried through to other relevant experiments

    • It is now possible within Mnova to carry out atom to peak assignments both to 1D and 2D spectra. The assignment made in 1D will be carried through to other relevant experiments (2D for example).

    GSD (Global Spectral Deconvolution) has been greatly improved

    • GSD has been greatly improved including automatic detection of solvent peaks and characterization of specific proton signals as corresponding to labile protons

    Group Delay

    • Improved algorithm to process Bruker digitally filtered spectra in order to get rid of the so-called ‘smiles’ at both edges of the spectral width

    Data Analysis has been greatly improved

    • Rows corresponding to spectra which have been removed from document (after the graph has been created) are marked with red background color.
    • Added ability to change names and values of the fitting parameters. (new column “Report” in Y’-Column Model Function Dialog).
    • Set of additional mathematical functions (log, tan, abs, etc.) are now available in the formula parser of this dialog

    Importing of new spectral formats (ACD Labs, LC Model ASCII, Philips Achieva, Siemens Syngo) via scripting

    • It is possible to import new spectral formats by using the scripting engine.

    Exporting of spectra in different ASCII formats (Hz+Real, DmFit, FID, GSD Spectra, PPM+Real+Imaginary, etc) via scripting

    • It is possible to export NMR spectra in different ASCII formats just by following the menu ‘Scripts/Export ASCII’.

    Capability to change the size of the traces of a 2D NMR spectrum

    • It is possible to customize the size of the traces from the Properties dialog box

    Capability to cut off peaks to avoid overlapping in stacked spectra

    • It is possible to clip vertically the traces of a stacked plot from the Properties dialog box

    Customization of the pen width of the integral curves

    • The user is able to change the width of the integral curves from the Integral Properties dialog box

    Ability to automatically open .zip files obtained from Bruker Topspin

    • Problems opening .zip files not created in Windows (since Mnova 5.3.1)
    • Problems with the annotations after having saved the document with a zoom-in
    • Problems displaying the peak labels of a 2D spectrum after having cut some regions
    • In the scripting engine: Integral.rangeMax() gave smaller value than rangeMin()
    • X axis in Data Analysis graphic showed repeated values
    • Problems double clicking to open Multiplet Manager in Manual Multiplet mode
    • Some column labels of a previously customized GSD table didn’t match their contents
  • New Features

    Bugs fixed

    • Problems predicting the carbon chemical shift of imine groups
    • Problems predicting the spectra of Boron compounds
    • Problems predicting the NMR spectra of polideuterated compounds
    • Crash when running predictions of some allenes
  • New Features

    Capability to import additional LC/GC/MS formats (MassHunter, Iontrap, JEOL MSQ1000, SCIEX Analyst)

    • Mnova MS is able to import additional formats

    Chromatographic Manual Peak Detection/Integration

    • It is possible to manually integrate the desired peaks of your TIC chromatogram.

    Ability to change the order (up and down) of different plots (chromatogram and mass spectra)

    • It is possible to freely move up and down the plots just by right clicking on them and selecting the desired option (Move Plot Top, Up, Down or Bottom)

    Ability to extract a chromatogram (TIC) or MS spectrum to a new page

    • It is possible to extract the active plot to a new page from the context menu or from the toolbars


    Possibility to show the polarity in TIC and mass spectrum header

    • The user is able to add the polarity in the headers by using the ‘Title Macro Editor’

    New button in the toolbar to open a mass chromatogram graphically and manually

    • A new button in the toolbar allows the user to generate a mass chromatogram for a given mass range selected directly on the spectrum or by entering m/s range in a dialog box

    Capability to apply ‘Molecular Match’ with MS/MS spectra

    • It is possible to run a Molecular Match with a MS/MS spectrum and see the result directly in the MS/MS.

    New toolbar in Mnova MS to extract plots and open new chromatograms

    • A new toolbar will allow the Mnova MS users to extract plots and open chromatograms quickly

    Ability to show the Precursor m/z on MS/MS spectra

    • The user is able to add the precursor on MS/MS spectra in the headers by using the ‘Title Macro Editor’
